“The Robbery of the Century…it would be a crime to miss it!”
The Jokers is a comedy film written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, and directed by Michael Winner. The film stars Michael Crawford and Oliver Reed as brothers who hatch a plot to steal the Crown Jewels.
Very much of its time – “Swinging London” – the film makes great use of London locations. Included was a short sequence of Jezebel, a 1916 Dennis N-Type fire engine that is still owned and run by the Royal College of Science Union at Imperial College London.
The film also features Harry Andrews, Daniel Massey, Michael Hordern, Frank Finlay, Warren Mitchell, Peter Graves and Edward Fox.
